Sultry and sexy Yoruba actress, Biodun Okeowo known in the industry as Tolani Oshirin or Omobutty recently granted an interview with Vanguard where she preached against pre-marital sex, how she married as a virgin and� oh yes, her wedding night.
See excerpts below:
Which parts of your body do you think are your selling points? …
Well, I will say my hips and eyeballs. God has blessed me with what African men really like. Even the modern day African man, who pretends to like a skinny woman, after getting down with her, he would marry a woman who has ample flesh in the right proportions.
How have you been coping, as a single mother with two kids?
It’s one question I don’t like going deep into for personal reasons. I will only say God has been faithful. I’m fine and cool as you can see. I am a happy woman in all ramifications and the envy of other ladies.
Would you say your chosen career was the reason for your failed marriage?
We are pencils in the hand of the creator; he knows and directs our lives. My career has got nothing to do with that.
What lessons did you learn from your previous marriage?
My broken marriage was a place of learning to me. It taught me to be a better person and has opened a hidden part of me. Then I was younger but I have learnt that what will be will be, no matter what.
Would you say he was at fault?
Fault, who am I to apportion blames or Judge? God knows best. I thank God we are both doing well in our respective homes.
Any plans of marrying again?
Presently, I’ll like to remain mute on my marital status but the glaring truth is that I’m not single.
What do you mean by saying you are not single?
It simply means I have a man in my life. But what I am not ready to disclose are details about him. I am not single because I am with a man. Please don’t ask me any further question on this. I am a very happy woman in love with a man in my life.
At this stage in your life, would you consider being a second wife?
I won’t break someone else’s home because I don’t want mine to be broken as well. But then man proposes and God disposes. No one can decide for God. We can only pray fervently for our wishes. But one thing I don’t joke with is my happiness.
What do you have to say about pre-marital sex among our youths?
It is saddening that pre-marital sex has taken over our time. In the past, most of our men would disassociate themselves with girls who have been deflowered outside wedlock. Then a woman’s virginity was her pride but time has changed and human beings have changed. I am not happy about it. Maybe we should blame civilisation or modernisation for this.�I pray for God’s intervention in this era.
Did you marry as a virgin?
Yes, I did and I can boldly say that.
What was your first sex experience?
My first experience was full of fear, uncertainty, pain and alas! I loved it at the end.
How do you think your kids feel when they see their mum in sensual roles?
I have been working and thinking on that recently. My kids are growing fast and are very intelligent. For their sake, I am trying not to act dirty or rough, but at the same time I have to interpret my roles very well, especially if it is a movie I producing. I also censor the movies they watch, be it mine or other films.
Have you ever regretted being part of any movie?
Yes, years back when I was still a novice in the industry. I did some wishy-washy jobs because I grabbed every job that came my way. Unfortunately for me those jobs didn’t come out until I have already become an established actress in the business.
Some of these films were so bad that most of my fans thought I didn’t measure up to standard. I nearly lost many of them but they didn’t know I did those films when I was still green in the industry. But I quickly retraced my steps and in the process, I offended some producers.
Our society does not support single motherhood. How do you cope with the stigma of being a single mother?
(Smiles) I only know my status. I only know who I am. (smiles) for Biodun, she’s the happiest woman on earth. I am comfortable and happy in all ways. No stigma for me.
What is new about Biodun Okeowo?
My fans should watch out for �Instagram Babe” to be marketed by Corporate pictures. I love my fans and my God will continue to bless them.
